Whisper's First Child Academy of Hope is a nursery and primary school for the children in Kagoma Gate village, Kakira Sub-County - the poorest village in Jinja district.
When Whisper's school opened in November 2011, Kagoma Gate village had never had a school before. Parents, mostly farmers and sugar cane workers, forced their children to work.
The school has become very successful and at our parents' meeting in February 2013, we received parents from surrounding villages requesting us to take their children to our school. Parents in Kagoma Gate can now send children to the school for a registration fee of only 10.000 Ugandan shillings ($2,30p/$4).
We know how important it is for a child to be motivated and to be able to concetrate in class.
